This was my first book by her and I was so looking forward to it But I have to say that I was disappointed greatly The plot kept repeating itself over and over and there were so many bad people and then a quick final twist that left you thinking what?? It could have been a good short story but to waste all that time reading a book that just doesnt draw you in was a disappointment I will read another and give her another try but couldnt recommend this one

    Excellent reading

    As a Tami Hoag fan, I was thrilled by this book. It follows the equestrian life closely and gives wonderful insight into that world. The plot was good and the characters even better. The main character is someone that I would like to read more about. Don't miss this book.

    a good read

    I love Tami Hoag's writing. This book was a little different than her others like Ashes to Ashes, Night sins, Guilty of Sins, Dark thin line. This book starts telling you a little bit about equestrian, dressage and the competition between riders and grooms getting involved. Anyway, this was something i got to learn as I had no clue what goes on in the equestrain competitions. Elena, who is an ex-cop, ends up taking this case when a 12 year old Molly hires her to find her sister, Erin who was a groom to Jade. When Det. Landry gets into the picture, Elena who is not suppose to be involved in police investigation because of her past, refuses to back away as she feels an obligation to Molly to help find her sister. Landry and Elena try to solve the kidnapping case of Erin and find who killed Jill who is also another groom to Jade. A few suspects but who done it? Good Suspense and the ending was interesting.

    Looking for more by Hoag

    This was the first of Hoag's books that I read and I found it very interesting. It keeps you guessing. I am looking forward to reading her others! The author has a great style of writing.

    A Winner - By a Nose

    I am not familiar with this author, and am somewhat surprised at the disappointment expressed in earlier reviews. If this is an example of her poorest work, I look forward to reading her best! I thought she did a great job with the character of Elena Estes, a complex and flawed heroine with a talent for the snappy comeback. Such a character is strong enough to stand on her own, and I was disappointed when Ms. Hoag felt the need to provide the obligatory male romantic interest. The story was absorbing, though a bit overlong. I am not a horse fan, but the author's warm and affectionate descriptions made some of the equine characters the most likable in the book.

    Dark Horse Is a Winner!!

    If you are looking for a romance novel...look elsewhere...but if you are looking for a good private-eye novel...this is for you.... The character of Elena Estes is like all of us...flawed and human.... she has made mistakes and is struggling to deal with the consequences of them...The author's own knowledge of the world of show horses adds authenticity to this book...
